The Company of Communicators is committed to being a centre for charitable endeavour. The Court has therefore decided to create a platform for charitable giving and social action on behalf of the communications industry in the UK. Once introduced this platform will enable us to implement a program of pro bono activity in support of charities as well as providing a means to donate to our charitable fund - the Company of Communicators Trust - which in turn supports a number of worthy causes related to communications.
